  • We love just driving around in the mountains. The air is clean and there are things to do. They sell jerky and have nice restraunts. It does get very busy during the winter when it snows. Go downtown ...  more »

  • Wonderful forest with a number of trails for any level of hiking. The change of scenery from the trailhead to your summit is one of the unique aspects of this forest ranging from lush greens to barren rock face. If you are unsure of the area and don't have a reliable GPS I would pickup an area map. Some of the peaks shown on hiking maps do not show up on Google Maps so one shouldn't rely on that system.
  • We love the yellow post campsites here. Great places to get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors. Just the basics of fire pit and picnic table. Bring everything else you need.
  • I've lived here for 10 years. Still love it but having to commute down the hill isn't that much fun. Unless I'm driving my Audi RS4. Then it's a blast!
  • I love this place, especially the area around Big Bear. There's many views to see and the nature is simply stunning.
  • Owner of amazing little towns and the highest peak in Southern California ( approx. 11,600+ ft.) located in the San Gorgonio wilderness.
